10 Questions with Gary Thor Wedow

Wedow is currently a faculty member of the Julliard School and has been a frequent guest of Seattle Opera, Florida Grand Opera, Boston Lyric Opera, Canadian Opera Company, Glimmerglass Opera, Portland Opera, Wolf Trap Opera, Berkshire Opera, Chautauqua Opera, Opera Saratoga, Arizona Opera, Amherst Early Music Festival and Pittsburgh Opera among others. He was for many years associated with New York City Opera, leading the New York premiere of Telemann’s Orpheus, the groundbreaking Christopher Alden productions of Don Giovanni and Stephen Wadsworth’s Serse.
